Elementary Mathematics from an Advanced Standpoint: Geometry by Felix Klein

By Felix Klein

"Nothing equivalent to it." — Mathematics instructor. This finished three-part therapy starts with a attention of the easiest geometric manifolds: line-segment, region, and quantity as relative magnitudes; the Grassmann determinant precept for the aircraft and the Grassmann precept for house; type of the easy configurations of area in line with their habit lower than transformation of oblong coordinates; and spinoff manifolds. the second one part, on geometric alterations, examines affine and projective differences; greater aspect ameliorations; changes with swap of area aspect; and the speculation of the imaginary. The textual content concludes with a scientific dialogue of geometry and its foundations. 1939 version. 141 figures.

Metaharmonic Lattice Point Theory (Chapman & Hall Pure and Applied Mathematics)

Metaharmonic Lattice aspect concept covers interrelated equipment and instruments of spherically orientated geomathematics and periodically mirrored analytic quantity thought. The booklet establishes multi-dimensional Euler and Poisson summation formulation equivalent to elliptic operators for the adaptive decision and calculation of formulation and identities of weighted lattice aspect numbers, particularly the non-uniform distribution of lattice issues.

Differential Geometric Structures (Dover Books on Mathematics)

Precious for self sufficient examine and as a reference paintings, this creation to differential geometry positive aspects many examples and workouts. It defines geometric constitution by means of specifying the parallel delivery in a suitable fiber package, targeting the best situations of linear parallel shipping in a vector package deal.

An Algebraic Geometric Approach to Separation of Variables

Konrad Schöbel goals to put the rules for a consequent algebraic geometric remedy of variable Separation, which is one of many oldest and strongest the right way to build distinct suggestions for the elemental equations in classical and quantum physics. the current paintings unearths a stunning algebraic geometric constitution at the back of the well-known checklist of separation coordinates, bringing jointly a very good variety of arithmetic and mathematical physics, from the past due nineteenth century concept of separation of variables to trendy moduli house conception, Stasheff polytopes and operads.

Singular Points of Plane Curves (London Mathematical Society Student Texts)

Even the easiest singularities of planar curves, e. g. the place the curve crosses itself, or the place it varieties a cusp, are most sensible understood when it comes to advanced numbers. the complete therapy makes use of thoughts from algebra, algebraic geometry, complicated research and topology and makes an enticing bankruptcy of arithmetic, which are used as an creation to any of those subject matters, or to singularity idea in better dimensions.
